Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic feels the confidence Sir Alex Ferguson gives his side is one of the main reason he's stayed successful at Old Trafford.

Since winning the FA Cup in 1990, Ferguson's United has yet to relent in his quest for trophies, and after 25 years at the helm, he is the most successful manager in English football.

A mark of every United team under Ferguson has been their ability to rise from adversity, constantly defying the odds late on in games, and Vidic says Ferguson's belief in the team galvanises them to these late comebacks.

"The most important thing he gives to players is confidence," said Vidic. "He believes in them. He trusts them.

"When you have a hard time, he is always there for you. This is what helped me, especially in the first six months. He helps players move from the bad times and we all have them.

"Obviously, with the experience he has and the trophies he has won, it doesn't take me to say how important he is to this club.

"Sometimes he can be really hard, sometimes he can be nice. This is the thing. He always knows how he should act with the players. That is why I think he is a great manager."

The Serbian centre-back was handed the United captaincy at the beginning of last season and his talismanic displays at the back has been the cornerstone of the club's trophy laden success since he joined the club in 2006.
